An episode on TruckU | on SPEED they have the guys removing the entire 6.7L exhaust system and going with aftermarket non DEF/DPF exhaust and a tuner. So it can be done. However, like the previous F350/250 versions, when you crank up the tuner wick, the tranny and rear end then tend to go out early.

Sorry have to disagree with you. Now what I'm going to say has to be within reason. A mild tune for safe towing would yield more power. Now more power= better mileage which = less emissions which equals less regens.

People says tuned diesels are ruining the environment, and yes the guys that go nuts and blowing smoke everywhere are wasting energy, but the ones that tune properly that are increasing there mileage sometimes by as much as 50% are doing more good then all the emissions crap on these new trucks. Better mileage equals less emissions.

I personally did not tune my truck for the power. I tuned it because it shut down on me one day in the middle of the road because of a EGT sensor in the exhaust. Those sensors are no longer there. I tow in the North Georgis mountains and having the truck shut down on the down hill side of a mountain scared me and my wife. I swore that I would never remove the emmisions because the truck was great the way it was, but that was before I received the message "stop vehicle safely" on my dash and 3 seconds later the truck shut down. As for power, when and co-worker who owns a 69 Mustang with a built 351 Clevland thought big truck could not go that fast, and I took him for a ride and performed a 4wd launch, he refused to race me for pinks. Just saying
